Bishop Kieran Conry

Just before travelling to Rome to take part in the Synod, the Chair of the Bishops' Conference Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis spoke of his expectations for the meeting.
The Rt Rev Kieran Conry, Bishop of Arundel and Brighton, was interviewed for a preview podcast from the Home Mission Desk.
Bishop Conry said:

"I hope it will give the Church in Europe new breath. I think essentially that’s the urgency of the question because the world around us here in Europe has changed enormously in the past 50 years since the Vatican Council was first called. The way in which the world has changed, our society and culture has changed, has had an enormous impact on the Church. The way in which people listen, the way in which people perceive truth, the way in which people experience faith; all these have made a Synod gathering like this, I think, a very very important moment."

Kieran Thomas Conry was born on 1 February 1951 in Coventry, England. He was educated at All Souls RC Primary School, Coventry, and Cotton College (Junior Seminary) in North Staffordshire, before moving to the Venerable English College in Rome to study for the priesthood.
